Met Music director, James Levine conducts a spirited new production of Mozart's masterpiece, directed by Richard Eyre, who sets the action of this classic domestic comedy in a 19th-century manor house in Seville, but during the gilded age of the late 1920s.

Dashing bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov leads the cast in the title role of the clever servant, opposite Marlis Petersen as his bride, Susanna; Peter Mattei as the philandering Count they work for; Marina Poplavskaya as the long-suffering Countess, and Isabel Leonard as the libidinous pageboy, Cherubino.
